Podcast Starter Kit: “The Comedy Button”

Comedy+Button+Cast+Podcast+Itunes+ComedyIf you’re new to the podcast world and unsure about what to subscribe to on Itunes, we’re here to help.

We listen to various podcasts while we write, so we know some of the gems buried in the pile of bad podcasts in Itunes.

The Comedy Button is a comedy podcast made by guys in the video game industry. Many of the guys currently write at IGN or Geekbox. The cast includes: Anthony Gallegos, Ryan Scott, Brian Altano, Scott Bromley and Max Scoville.

A lot of the humor is very geek-oriented (video games, comic books), but once you listen to an episode, you’ll want to hear more.

We post a few YouTube clips from their show and where you can listen to The Comedy Button episodes.

If you’re looking to find the best episode, look not further than their “Home Alone 2″ episode. You can watch the movie as they run a commentary through the entire movie with you. They have similar episodes for the movies “Street Fighter” and “The Santa Clause”.

Here’s part one of them sampling every sh*tty booze found at a liquor store.
Anthony Gallegos “breaking his d*ck off” dancing to a dance track
Ryan Scott reads poorly written PR release for video games
Listeners send in potential “The Comedy Button” theme songs
Brian Altano overhears two people describe Two-Face’s origin incorrectly

If you want to find new episodes of The Comedy Button, you can find them at Geekbox.net or subscribe to the podcast on Itunes.

I highly recommend the “Home Alone 2″ commentary. You can find the streaming audio of the episode here.
